The travel advisors have spoken: luxury river cruise line AmaWaterways announced an extension of their complimentary pre- or post-cruise land packages as add-ons for select Europe and Egypt cruises for groups and FIT travelers this year. The land packages are available on new reservations made through March 31 on select 2023 departures. Note: For 2024, the offer only extends to groups reserving 5 or more staterooms on select 2024 sailings. With this offer, you can add complimentary 2-, 3-, or 4-night land packages to their river cruise experience.

“When we first announced the complimentary pre- or post-cruise land packages in October, we received amazing feedback from our travel advisor partners as the offer was easy to communicate to their clients and offered added value of up to $3,800 per couple,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways, in a press statement. “Due to its popularity and the continued demand for longer, more immersive travel experiences, we have extended the Complimentary Land Package offer on select sailings so more guests can enjoy time exploring the world.”

The trend is towards lengthier stays with more immersive experiences, and these complimentary packages give your clients exactly what they want: to explore amazing locations while staying in world-class hotels. And, of course, AmaWaterways’ Cruise Managers will keep them company the entire way. The packages include breakfast daily, transfers and portage between the ship and the hotel, plus tours and experiences. Cities include Prague, Paris, Vienna, Budapest, Amsterdam, Lake Lucerne, Barcelona, Nice, Geneva and Lake Como, among others.
